The Riad Massiba is much more than a guest-house, the owner Vivienne and the kindly staff Ahmed are so careful, warm-hearted, helpfull, kindly and always served Ahmed us fresh mint tea. The Riad is an really relaxing place. The Riad Massiba is a really welcome place, in the middle of marrakech. The Building has an traditional style with 4 guest-rooms... More

We really enjoyed our stay in this beautifull Riad, built in the traditional style, with some nice, simple, tasteful touches. Our room was lovely, quiet, clean and full of character. Away from the city’s hustle and bustle, we have enjoyed some home made mint tea at the peacefull atmosphere of Vivienne’s patio. The lovely roof garden, where we’ve enjoyed our... More

We received a very friendly welcoming from Vivienne and Amed. As our flight from Paris was very early, they offered us, when we are arriving, a breakfast. A nice attention. We took the breakfast every morning because it was so DELICIOUS with fresh fruits, fresh orange juice, mint tea, typical moroccan pancakes and croissants! You can choose when you want... More

The Riad experience is much more of an "invited guest to a mansion" rather than a guest-house, and is completely different from the hotel experience. Riad Massiba is exquisite. We were greeted by Ahmed, who I would describe as a "butler", at this unassuming entry door. Ahmed brought us into a waiting area and then served us mint tea. We... More

We only spent one night here, but we had a great experience. Our room was huge and well appointed. The rooftop terrace was a peaceful haven. Good location, about a 5 minute walk from Jemaa El Fna. There are two friendly cats here. The hosts were extremely helpful and booked us a taxi before dawn to go to the airport.

We stayed here for one night with our 2 children on our way to the Atlas Mountains. It was a lovely quiet oasis in the bustle of Marrakech, a short walk from the chaos of Djemaa el-Fna. Vivienne was a wonderful host and her staff made you feel very welcome. The rooms are clean and charming with an excellent roof... More

Seemed a bit off the beaten track from the map, but actually it was a perfect location, close too, but not actually in, the madness. Good sized, comfortable and interesting rooms, with very comfortable beds.

The riad was really clean and the staff were welcoming. There was a good variety for breakfast and all of our needs were met. It was a tranquil oasis in contrast to the busy, chaotic streets outside. I recommend our room with the private terrace, it's decorated beautifully and has the advantage of a separate wifi connection.

The location is wonderful - only 5 or 6 minutes to get to the Square, with the advantage that you can actually get a taxi right to the front door if you wish. The rooms are spacious and clean, if not the most stylish. Ahmed is a lovely guy who will do anything to assist you in making your trip... More

It`s a really nice small Riad, located in the middle of the Old City. We stayed in the "Terrace Room". Not a big room, but with a private terrace - It was like being in and having an oasis in the middle of the busy city, very enjoyable and recommendable. And if you do not stay at the Terrace room,...
